TV shows industry is today flooded with different series, which often makes it difficult to maintain the ratings of a TV show. The creator must think about how to stay faithful to his idea, but at the same time how to keep his viewers; how to slowly develop the story, but that it does not become boring. In addition to these things, there are many others about which the creator of a TV show must think. Creators of TV shows like Grey’s Anatomy and Game of Thrones certainly managed to meet all the criteria of a great TV series. However, there are many series which, for various reasons, have not managed to hold on the small screens.
Veronica Mars is a series that has quickly gained popularity with certain viewers. Each episode was a puzzle that Veronica needed to solve, and every season was carrying a certain mystery. The series had 64 episodes, more precisely three seasons. Although the last, third season was as brilliant as the previous two, it was already slowly seen that the theme of the series began to move in some other direction.
Freaks and Geeks
Freaks and Geeks is a series that has shown adolescence in an interesting way. It had positive reviews, but it failed to keep the audience. After changing the show’s time slot and after airing episodes out of order, NBC canceled the series in 2000. Only 12 out of 18 episodes were broadcasted, and the series’ fans were certainly disappointed.
This is a series that was not like the others that were broadcasting. It is a spy series whose action takes place in the 1940s, and the main character is a very intelligent and dangerous woman, Peggy Carter. Her character was first established in the Marvel film Captain America: The First Avenger, where she appeared to be very noticeable. Given the lack of female characters in the MCU, Agent Carter was a good idea for the series. As agent Carter is the founder of S.H.I.E.L.D in the series, her character is also associated with that other Marvel TV show. However, although Marvel’s hero, Agent Carter, unlike the Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D, could not closely be associated with the MCU, which is one of the reasons for the break-up of the series after only two seasons.
Pushing Daisies was created by fantastic Bryan Fuller. The series combines many different elements that should not be found together, such as romance, fairy tale, musical, mystery and noir, but in spite of that, the creator of the series perfectly composed all of that. The main character is Ned the pie maker, but as a narrator appears Jim Dale, so he can also be considered as the main character. In the series, Ned returns dead people to life, but briefly, and his faithful friend is a golden retriever called Digby. In addition, the series follows the endless creativity that was stopped after 22 episodes.
Arrested Development is perhaps the best series Fox has had in the past ten years, so there was a big disaster when the series was abolished due to a lack of popularity. This series gave a whole new dimension to sitcoms and gathered the best actors. The absurd world and phenomenal jokes were the main reasons why the audience constantly followed the new episodes. But despite this, every new season was uncertain because the series did not have enough viewers. After the third season and 53 episodes, the series ended.
